About Us

Petras Medical Clinic
Is a specialty medical practice opened in 2010 by myself, Ognjen Petras M.D. Our mission is to provide high quality, ethical, and reasonably priced laser-based treatments for Onychomycosis (fungal nail infections). Onychomycosis affects at least 20% of Bay Area residents.. Many physicians are unwilling to treat the infection with medications due to the hazards of drug-based therapies, and their high failure rates. Based on my clinical experience, Pinpointe Laser therapy is an excellent treatment option for onychomycosis, particularly in patients in the early stages of the infection
